      The chromatic scale has been associated with circus music since the early 1900's when a piece called "Entrance of the Gladiators" by Czech composer Julius Fučík became popular and was used to introduce the clowns.

    I've started re-reading Tolkien and not really his main works, but the compiled stuff edited by his son (Book of Lost Tales, History of Middle Earth, etc). Honestly I had not known how much and how beautiful things were hidden in these. You should all give The Lost Road a read.

    @DesdemonaShelley Ursula Le Guin --- Margareth Weiss The Sword of Joram (only the two first books) --- Patrick Rothfuss (The name of the wind) George R.R. Martin (A Game of Thrones). The Master of Fantastic Literature is until now Tolkien, but all this stories get close, straight ahead to the second position , and at least will give you a fine time. I am sure that you perhaps know another ones.

      Sorrry but it is it’s very own work. And ties more to our older origins such as Atlantis and Lemuria. But no doubt as a scholar of many things. He was influenced by Finnish more and so on. But he did not make anything an allegory to anything else. 😛💕❤️🌸

    @sand451 can you say his descriptions are dull? I mean, he notes every little detail, every motion and every feeling...Even though I haven't red the book from the prototype but from a greek translation, I was still amazed by his spirit! By no means he's boring or childish, but not everyone like the same type of "fairy tails", I suppose^^ But, hell yes, we do love him :)

    hey guys, hate to be a ball breaker, but Tolkien is not a great author, but an amazing STORY TELLER! There is a great difference...Author is Steven King or Kazantzakis or Dostoyevski... Tolien came up with an incredible story that changed much....But he is not an author...He is boring, his descriptions are dull and most of them childish....Still we love him though, don't forget....

    @yoblyRTF Children of hurin was pretty damn reminded me of a Shakespeare tragedy kinda lol. I read somewhere that Tolkien actually based the character of Turin on a poem called Kalevala. I read about it, and it is very similar. With the whole sister thing, and a doomed fate.

    • Robert Burrows
      Robert Burrows Month ago

      Yes but it is it’s very own work that is not found any peer. And nor is there allegory or plagiarism in it. Sorry to say. But I can agree to your comment to an extent but he was not copying it.

    I'd say the movies are still very good. Actually, it was the fans there were most excited about the movies, because they were so proud of them. For once it seemed that having read the book BEFORE seeing the movie made you like the movie more. Which is a phenomenom xD

    "Frodo felt that he was in a timeless land that did not fade or change or fall into forgetfulness. When he had gone and passed again into the outer world, still Frodo the wanderer from the Shire would walk there, upon the grass among elanor and niphredil in fair Lothlórien." --a quote from the book.

    Thw fire of John Tolkien was as similar(as not many ppl would guess)to the fire that he explained that was born in Feanor,his Inflamitory{but perhaps most noted character that had a small part but a great part,being created thrice as great as the most hardy persons in existance-of all who have ever been born.With J.R.R.Tolkien,I think,it was a similarity to his own veiw that his lifes work of Middle-Earth (ere and behond),of all the Tales of Elves and men,and thier tales,that he was a sage lord

    Finally some music that sounds much like Lothlorien feels in my mind. Thanks for introducing me to this. Although the movies were good, I think the director missed the mark by depicting Galadriel with a twist of sinister, whereas when I read the book (repeatedly!) I saw her as angelic and her realm as heavenly.

    Uh.. THe music is very good on it's own but personally it kinda ruins the music already associated with the movie. I am thinking that maybe because i have listened to the original one a lot. This music does not seem to be fitting after all that.
